Uncle John's Cider May Be Contaminated with E.coli


(WILX) The state is warning people to not consume cider recently purchased from Uncle John's Cider Mill in St. Johns because it has the potential to be contaminated with Shiga-toxin producing E. coli bacteria.

 

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development says the advisory affects approximately 1,200 gallons of cider produced on October 17. The cider was sold at the cider mill from the retail cooler, packaged in various sized plastic jugs with a sell by date of October 30, 2015; or served directly to consumers by the cup as cold cider, frozen cider slushes and hot cider, from October 18 through October 21.

 

A routine, random sample collected by an MDARD food inspector tested positive for the Shiga-toxin producing E. coli by the department’s Geagley Laboratory. No illnesses have been reported to date. Uncle John’s has voluntarily ceased sales of cider awaiting further test results.


2016 Camaro Debuts at GM Grand River Assembly Plant


(LSJ)Three Camaros rolled down the line of GM's Grand River assembly plant on Monday, one red, one white and one blue.

It was a fitting entrance. This is the first time the Camaro has been built in the U.S. since 1992, when GM moved production from California to Canada.

 

 

"It's here," said Mike Green, president of the UAW Local 652. "The American muscle car comes back to Lansing."

The Camaro hasn't even hit dealership lots yet, and it's already on the shortlist for the 2016 North American Car of the Year award.

 

The starting price is $26,695 for the Camaro 1LT which is powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder or 3.6L V6 engine. The 1SS model with a 6.2L V8 engine starts at $37,295. It will be available in coupe and convertible body styles.

 

The three Camaros that rolled down the assembly line are among the first one hundred produced for consumers. Dozens of other Camaros are sitting on back lots at the plant. GM expects Camaros to be available at dealerships by mid-November.

GM invested $175 million in the plant to upgrade its tooling and equipment to support production of the Camaro. This summer, it hired 450 employees to work second shift to keep up with production demand. The plant has been producing pilot Camaros for the past few months for testing purposes.

 

"For this iconic brand to be made in Michgan puts us on the map," said Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero. "This says we do good work. It's a stepping point for economic development."


Shooting at T.I.'s brand new restaurant


(TMZ) T.I.'s new Atlanta soul food restaurant was the scene of a shootout with a group of customers, leaving one man injured and also arrested for drugs ... TMZ has learned.

 

1026-ti-925-main-tmz-getty-01


The shooting went down outside Scales 925 on Sunday night. According to cops, the incident started inside the restaurant on an upper deck patio ... where a group of 5 or 6 men started arguing.


Staffers threw the men out, but police say the fight continued in the parking lot ... and that's where one man in a red shirt whipped out a handgun and shot the victim once in the leg. We're told the victim escaped from the scene in a friend's Porsche.


Police were responding to a 911 call about the shooting when they pulled over the Porsche. Cops say they found the victim bleeding, but he also had a duffle bag with 240 grams of marijuana and $6,000 in cash.


The victim was booked for reckless conduct and possession of marijuana. He told cops he did not know the shooter. The entire incident was captured on restaurant surveillance cameras.
 

T.I. was NOT at the restaurant nor anywhere near it at the time of the shooting.
 

Police are searching for the shooter.

(Fox 5) According to a new poll commissioned by Alchemy, a firm that works with companies across the food chain to improve safety and productivity, 51 percent of food workers (including people who grow, process, cook, and serve it) say they “always” or “frequently” go to work when they’re feeling ill. Thirty-eight percent said they “sometimes” go to work sick.

 

According to the survey, 9 in 10 of the 1,200 respondents say that they feel “responsible for the safety and well-being” of those they serve, yet 45 percent of workers said they still clock in because they “can’t afford to lose pay.”

Looking for tickets for Saturday's MSU-Michigan game? Be ready to pay a steep price.


(WXYZ)  A historic matchup between Michigan State and Michigan on Saturday means tickets for the game are going to be expensive and hard to find.

 

 

With tickets from the university sold out, the only option fans have is to buy tickets on resale websites like StubHub, Craigslist and more.

 

The cheapest ticket on StubHub as of Monday morning is $238.95 with fees . That is for a single ticket in section 9, row 65.

 

If you want to get two tickets, the cheapest price is $265.50 per ticket in section 15, row 92. That again, is with fees.

 

Most of the tickets available after that below $300 are for single tickets, or even-numbered tickets above row 60.

 

To get an even number of tickets below row 60, it's going to cost you more than $300.

 

For row one tickets in various sections, the cheapest is $310.19 with fees to set in the end zone corner. For an even number of tickets in row one, it will cost you $470.25 a ticket.

 

StubHub is the official resale website for the University of Michigan, but if you go on another site like Craigslist and search by owner, one ticket will cost you at least $200.

(Pitchfork) The last time the Weeknd was on "Saturday Night Live", he was singing alongside Ariana Grande. Last night, Abel Tesfaye took center stage as the musical guest on an episode hosted by Amy Schumer. When he did his Beauty Behind the Madness single "The Hills", he was joined by Nicki Minaj to perform her new remix—that's out now, and so is a new remix featuring Eminem.

Tesfaye also performed "Can't Feel My Face" and appeared on "Weekend Update" for a bit called "Weeknd Update" (at around the 2:00 mark below).

 

 
 

The Facebook Dislike button is here....sort of.


(From  E Online)
 Good news: Facebook's new feature that updates the "like" button has arrived! 

Neural news (we can't decide if it's good or bad yet): It's definitely not the thumbs down icon we were all expecting.

Facebook started testing what they are calling "Reactions," which are essentially emojis that users can use to express emotions beyond just "like."

 
Facebook emojis, dislike buttonFacebook

"Today we are beginning to test Reactions – an extension of the Like button that gives people more ways to share their reaction to a post in a quick and easy way," Product Manager Chris Tosswill announces in a Facebook blog post. "We're excited to start this test, but understand that this is a big change, and one that we want to make sure to get right. So we're starting by offering Reactions to Ireland and Spain, where people will be able to react to any post across Facebook – a post from a friend, advertiser, publisher or business."

So instead of just getting one, giant thumbs down button to use on statuses we certainly do not like (because who wants to press "like" when someone announces they are divorcing a cheating spouse?), Facebook users will get to choose from six different emojis, as well as the like button.

The emojis people can use to react to statues are "love," "haha," "yay," "wow," "sad" and "angry." These emojis also move, almost like a GIF.

 
Facebook emojis, dislike buttonFacebook

"As you can see, it's not a ‘dislike' button, though we hope it addresses the spirit of this request more broadly," Facebook Chief Product Officer Chris Cox wroteunderneath a video that shows off the new feature. "We studied which comments and reactions are most commonly and universally expressed across Facebook, then worked to design an experience around them that was elegant and fun."

Facebook is also using these "Reactions" as a way to pick and choose which stories and post show up on a user's News Feed.

"Initially, just as we do when someone likes a post, if someone uses a Reaction, we will infer they want to see more of that type of post. We will spend time learning from this initial rollout and iterate based on findings in the future," writes Tosswill.

 
 

Though it's only in the testing phase and not available to all users yet, Facebook hopes to use this phase to tweak and improve the feature. Hopefully, the worldwide rollout will be on its way soon.


College student expelled after attacking campus cafeteria workers


(Gawker) Luke Gatti, the 19-year-old University of Connecticut student who swaggered into a campus cafeteria with a beer Sunday night and drunkenly demanded some “f***ing jalapeño bacon mac and cheese,” has reportedly been expelled from the university over the incident.

 

 

 

 

Gatti’s famous tantrum, which involved calling the cafeteria manager a “f***ing idiot” and mockingly reading the unfortunate man’s nametag over and over, ended when another food service worker took him to the ground. Campus police took over from there.
